Frequently asked questions

How does counselling work?


Counselling can lead to a greater understanding of your problems and this in turn can lead to a new awareness and help you to make changes in your life. Together, we aim for a new outlook, where you feel that your difficulties have been addressed


What happens during the first session?


The initial consultation should help you to decide if you wish to engage in any further sessions and to see if you feel I am the right person for you to work with. It is also an opportunity to assess the issues you wish to address and for me to tell you a little more about how I work. There is no obligation to book any further sessions following this.

What is a professional body and are you a member of one?


There are various professional bodies (also known as member organisations) in existence that have taken on the role of self-regulation of counselling/psychotherapy. Whilst counsellors and psychotherapists are under no legal obligation to become a member of a professional body, membership will mean they have met certain requirements set by their professional body and must abide by a code of ethics and complaints procedure. I am an accredited member of the BACP.


How many sessions will I need?


This depends. Counselling is a collaborative process between us both and depends on each individual person. Some find significant relief from just a few sessions, whereas others may continue for several months. We will regularly review where you are in the counselling process to see how you have progressed and what work you feel still needs attention.


Do you offer evening and weekend sessions?


Yes, evening, early morning and weekend sessions are available.


What is supervision?


Within the BACP, supervision is mandatory for all counsellors, in order to monitor their standards of counselling competence and to review their professional development. Counselling supervision enhances the counsellor’s effectiveness in responding to the client’s needs. I attend supervision at a minimum of once a month.
